Gerard Kelly

Recording Fags, Mags & Bags

Actor Gerard Kelly (pictured third from the left in the picture taken at a Radio 4 recording of Mags, Fags and Bags) has died at the age of 51 following a brain aneurysm earlier in the week.

Kelly is a key player in an early Victoria Wood sketch – The Italian Restaurant.

The dialogue between Victoria Wood and Julia Walters bristles. The tension between Walters and her referred to spouse simmers in our imagination, pierced momentarily by Kelly’s over-amorous suggestions every time he waits on their table.

It’s his lines which often feature in banter between me and my Significant Other, the line “I know what you ladies like, huh?” being a particular favourite.
